Introduction 



The Design Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts encourages critical 
thinking about design. Films and television programs about the designed environment can 
help focus public attention on a variety of timely design issues. Programs which create 
critical portraits of the design process, designed objects and designers themselves become 
valuable tools for the consumers of design as well as the professional designer in their efforts 
to increase an understanding of the complex struggle to ensure a livable environment. The 
impact of design decisions in this process, whether based on economic or aesthetic consid- 
erations, is a subject of labyrinthine proportions; it has yet to be fully conveyed by the 
camera's eye to a large and disparate audience. A cinematic treatment of this topic demands 
the best of thefilm artist's talent, as well as critical insight into the relationship of the design 
arts to the social, political and economic milieu in which they thrive. 

This guide represents a first attempt to collate a wide variety of film and video materials on 
design. It reveals an unexpected abundance of existing material, as well as areas to consider 
in future programming plans; the disciplines of interior, industrial, graphic and fashion 
design, for example, offer a still untapped source of material and potentially exciting subjects 
for film or video study. It is our hope that this publication will help stimulate an understanding 
and concern for the realm of the design arts and, through the media, the important role they 
play in how we feel about our homes, our cities, and ourselves.

Preface 



Focus: A Design Arts Film and Video Guide is a compendium of film and video programs on 
the disciplines of architecture, urban and regional planning, landscape design, graphic, 
industrial, interior and fashion design. Although the interest in audio-visual materials about 
design has grown in the last decade, the lack of a central source of information about the 
range or number of programs available has often hindered those who would like to expand 
educational programs with visual presentations. This publication has grown out of an interest 
in the Design Arts Program of the National Endowment for the Arts and in the Partners for 
Livable Places, to encourage the production and use of high quality programs to communi- 
cate about the various fields of design. 

The information in this guide was obtained directly from distributors' catalogs and listings. 
We have made no attempt to screen the films or to determine for how long they would 
continue to be available. This guide was planned to be simply a reference source. We 
strongly urge users to confirm the availability of films before making plans to use them, and 
to screen materials to make sure they are suitable before showing them in public. 

My thanks to the library staff of the American Institute of Architects and the film library of the 
National Trust for Historic Preservation, which were of great help to me in preparing this 
guide.

How to Use This Book 



(9) 



Explanation of a typical entry 

(1) BOOMSVILLE 

(2) (3) (4) (5) 

16mm, color, 1969, 10 min., no narration 
Dist: NFBC (6) 
Dir: Yvon Mallette (7) 
Prod: P. Robert Verrall (8) 

An ironic view of town planning, or rather, the lack of 
it, and what has happened to our cities as a result. 
Done in cartoon animation, the film traces the 
growth of the typical city, from a tiny settlement in 
the vast North American wilderness to the car- 
clogged metropolis of today. 

The programs in this guide are arranged in alphabetical order by title (1). Each entry is 
designed to include information on the medium (2), color (3), year of release (4), and running 
length (5), where available. Addresses for the Distributor (6), may be found in the Distribu- 
tor's Index beginning on page 53. Prices for purchase or rental have not been included, as 
they are frequently subject to change. Director (7) and Producer (8) names have been 
included where available. A description of the Program's Content (9), concludes each entry. 

The Index of Titles, page xi, is divided into subject categories to facilitate selection for specific 
audiences. Because of the broad scope of material comprising the URBAN ISSUES cate- 
gory, programs which focus on specific design problems in urban centers have been 
classified under URBAN PLANNING, and those which treat generalized questions about the 
quality of life in cities, or their particular character, will be found under CITIES.

The soaring tower that is synonymous with Paris 
made the name of Eiffel a household word, but that 
same tower obscured the man himself. One of the 
great engineering geniuses of all time, Gustave Eiffel 
left a legacy of landmarks throughout the world — 
bridges, viaducts, cathedrals, buildings of every kind. 
His contributions to design and construction are 
legion, and his innovative solutions to problems are 
standard procedures today, a half century after his 
death. His work in structural steel made the sky- 
scraper possible; the Panama Canal was built from 
his basic design. Using 19th century pictures, Un- 
known Eiffel is a portrait of a genius and his works.
